Yorkshire are favorites to win
Yorkshire Vikings will take on Durham in the 2022 Vitality Blast. The game will be played at Headingley, Leeds starting at 18:30 local time on Friday June 3rd.
Yorkshire Vikings beat Worcestershire Rapids by 7 wickets to kick off this campaign but have since tied with Lancashire Lightning and lost to Leicestershire Foxes and Derbyshire Falcons. Their most recent game saw them lose by 9 wickets in a rain affected game at Headingley on Tuesday evening where both teams were restricted to 8 overs each. Dawid Malan hit his second successive score of exactly 50 but none of the Vikings bowlers were able to pick up a wicket with the only breakthrough coming from a run out.
Durham have had comfortable wins over Leicestershire Foxes and Worcestershire Rapids with defeats coming against Northamptonshire Steelbacks and Birmingham Bears in between. After successive defeats, the North East county returned to winning ways with a 48 run win over the Rapids in their first home game of the season. Opener Michael Jones top scored with 44 runs from 25 balls before Ben Raine and Andrew Tye both picked up 3 wickets to keep Worcestershire at bay.
